In 2001, Cornerspring Montessori began operation at the residence of Director Paula Johnson on Congress Street in Belfast, Maine. At that time the school program, housed in a quaint historical home, had just 12 students. Seven years later Cornerspring expanded its programs and the school community grew to over 80 students with an addition of a new location at 18 Hatley Road, in Belfast.
Our dedicated and creative staff provide a stimulating environment in which children grow successfully and happily. Our classrooms are designed to foster independence and nurture children in their self-discovery of the world around them. We assist the child in acquiring the social skills and self confidence needed to fulfill their potential. This is accomplished by building on interests, nurturing enthusiasm and making activities available to fit individual needs.
Cornerspring is a non-profit Montessori school based on the teachings and philosophies of Dr. Maria Montessori. We welcome students from the age of 2 1/2 through the age of twelve. For more information feel free to contact us.
